We have used a special type of sweet tasting soluble fibre called fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) to sweeten these tablets. This natural material is extracted from chicory root and has the benefit of not causing tooth decay. Calcium tablets can often be quite large so we have developed these pleasant lemon flavoured chewable calcium tablets to encourage everyday use by all the family. Many people?s diets provide insufficient supplies of calcium, including 71% of female teenagers and a quarter of UK 4 year-olds. Calcium intakes of girls and women are of particular concern because achieving optimum bone density before the age of 30 will help to maintain strong bones in old age.
